Boat Ride on Louisiana bayous!
A couple of weeks ago, my dad called for us to go on a little boat ride. The kids were super excited, but not quite as much as I was. When I was a kid I practically grew up on the bayous. Every Friday we would all pack up, hop on the boat, and head out to the camp for the weekend. We had so much fun out there and it has been a while since I have visited. While riding through the familiar bayous, tons of childhood memories flooded my mind and cherished thoughts of my mom were so close. Here are a few pictures that do not even begin to capture the essence.
There are so many things that my kids have not experienced once that I did on a daily basis as a child. Things were so much more simple then and life was fun. My kids have a pretty good childhood thus far, but I just hope that I can give enough of our heritage and family tradition in there.
